This list is not exhaustive and I am sure I have left off a few things, but I think I nailed some common game supplies every youth pastor needs in case of an emergency. It’s my belief, that in an age of screens, students still need interaction with one another and these supplies foster games that encourage that.

There are standard elements like dodgeballs, cones, etc. every youth pastor should have, but these are supplies you could stuff in your desk in case of an emergency or order them in bulk and create an organized supply closet.

Please tell me what I’m missing down in the comments. Click on each item and you’ll be taken to some of my favorite games to play with that supply.
